Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.

Check out the quality and quantity of last week's loot.

I would not normally pick this one up, except this one was never played. It is the 15th anniversary edition. The box is no longer shrink wrapped but the cards are still sealed up. And since Salvation Army doesn't tape their boxes, no packing tape to remove $1.99

This one was also a $1.99 at GW. It is complete with the pewter figures and the ring. Missing only the instructions which were available on line. Aragonne's (sp) sword was bent though to the point where he's attempting to slice off his own leg the hardway (lengthwise).

$5 at the local store. Missing one red and four green scoring tags, but no big whoop there. Also missing the instructions, but you can figure it out by the box art.

This looks like a fairly mindless but fun time.

Interesting mix of stuff this week.

First up, the old Waddingtons warhorse, in lovely condition - later 1970's edition. Played this with my family and it was a complete blast - everyone said it was a great game We played with the later rule adjustment that the player with the most MONEY wins the game, plus my local betting variant (posted on the 'geek).

All complete, car boot sale, £1.00.

Hmmm.

Also found, a boxed starter set of Magic: The Gathering. 8th edition. Box a bit squished, but the dice and rules and 253 cards are in there... looks as if it was played once and then forgotten.

I'm not a big fan of the genre, so I didn't know whether to pass or not. In the end I took it.

Does this have any resale value?

Car boot sale. I think its all complete. £1.00.

"Diane, I'm standing in a car park in Stoke holding a small creased cardboard box with a slight odour of mildew."

The general consensus is that this is a dog of a game... but the last time I found one of these (about 5 years ago), it went for serious money on e-bay as a collectors item for fans of the series. I don't know what the market is like for it now.

Box has storage creases but it is alllllllllll complete. The only sign it has been tampered with is the fact that the doughnuts have escaped from the factory bag. Maybe they are trying to get back to the Black Lodge.

Car boot sale. ALL COMPLETE. 0.50p

"Damn fine coffee".
